I've now played with this gun for over 6 months and can say that my initial review may have been a bit harsh (and holy poop I should really proofread :P). That being said, yes, this gun has its issues. At the time I bought the gun, I really had no idea how to maintain or repair it. I was just getting into the sport and had no experience. With 6 months under my belt I can now say that this gun I decent, quite good in fact. I now realize that no gun out of the box is perfect and that aftermarket upgrades and tweaks are needed. The wiring in the stock WAS terrible, but I managed to crimp the wires and used a smaller battery. Problem solved. As for the curving bb issue I cleaned and realigned the barrel. Later on I installed a Tightbore, nullifying the issue completely. Now onto the good things. This gun has an amazing range! I can hit targets at over 150 feet. The fps has wound down from 380 to 350 but it's more than enough for my field. This gun is almost as accurate as some custom DMR's on my field even before the new inner barrel.
-Hits hard (350 fps with .25's!)
-Very accurate, approximately 150 ft.
-Sturdy, minimal scratching and no major damage to the body
-Good iron sights, I'll often use them over my red dot
-No feeding or jamming issues, even using cheap hi-caps
-A bit expensive at $180, I got it on sale when it was $150
-Needs a little work to become great, again, not a perfect beginner rifle.
-Fixed stock (personally a +)
-The gun is huge! Very long and not good at all for indoor play
Overall this gun is a great DMR platform. With a little work, you can have the best gun on the field. I've been complimented many times on the gun, how hard it hits, and how cool it looks. If you can get over the initial problems, by all means pick up this gun! "This gun is awesome. Chronoed mine at 406 fps. Once you adjust the hop up this gun shoot very accurately, only thing I don't like is that the rail covers that are included feel really cheap, they don't fit the rails right and they wobble really bad, I have a vertical grip on mine and the rails themselves have a slight wobble. Nothing major but still. All in all great gun. Would recommend to any beginner player or anyone who wants a good m16 pretty cheap. "PLEASE HEAD MY WARNING!!!
I bought this gun because of all the positive reviews and people saying that "It's such a good beginner gun." Turns out it's a Chinese knockoff that loves to break. It has a terrible internal battery design that's given me nothing but problems.
-Good, sturdy plastic
-Tight spread, good fire rate (chrono'd it at 350-370 with .25's)
-Horrible, terrible internal stock design. The biggest issue with this gun by far is the shoddy electrical connections between the gearbox and the battery. I had to open the gun on 4 separate conditions to re-tape the connections. As I played, the giant battery would shake around and knock the wiring loose. I finally cut the connectors (and with the help of a friend) soldered the damn things together.
-Very long bolt that runs the length of the stock wobbles. It's a constant pain and is really the only thing keeping the stock attached to the main body of the gun.
-The sling mounts on my gun are very loose and make a clanking noise when running. Can be fixed with a little tape.
-Inner barrel curve. I have a constant right curve on my gun. I took it apart and re-aligned the gearbox. That seemed to fix most of the problem, but it still hooks ever so slightly to the right.
-Battery that comes with the gun is obviously terrible. Cheap, Chinese ni-cad. It lasted for a while but I would highly recommend investing in a new battery and smart charger.
-Wobbly plastic rail on the bottom of the barrel. Any foregrips attached will wobble as well.
Overall please just stay away from this gun. There's so many other options out there. I know for sure that my specific gun wasn't all at fault. These design flaws will be in ALL the M16's. It's not all terrible, but definitely not the ideal beginner gun. Read More Reviews Write a Review
